Funding Opportunities

Research Professional Database

Research Professional is a funding opportunity database, which can be utilised by all UvA staff, academics and students looking for ways to fund their research. It is also a useful tool to locate funding opportunities for a travel grant, for instance, to attend a conference.

Research search tools help you browse through open calls from Dutch, European and international sponsors, pre-filtered for Dutch institutional eligibility.

You can access the site when on campus without logging in, but to set up email alerts and save search results you need to register. Registration for a personal account takes about two minutes to complete.

Registering for Research Professional helps you to:

  • use the database from anywhere (including when travelling);
  • create weekly email alerts for customized funding opportunities;
  • save your search results and re-run;
  • store interesting funding opportunities and share information with your colleagues.
